Raul Ibanez laced a 10th-inning, game-winning double into right field, capping one of the best offensive performances of his Phillies career, as the Phils won 6-5 to sweep the Pirates in their weekend series.
The offense: In addition to his winning hit, Ibanez homered twice in a game for the first time this season. He hit a solo shot in the second inning and tied it with two outs in the eighth with an opposite-field, two-run shot. Jimmy Rollins also finished with two hits on the day, including a two-run single in the fifth. Hunter Pence went 1-for-4 with a double that preceded Ibanez's game-winning hit in the 10th.
The pitching: Vance Worley gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out seven - matching his career high - and didn't walk a batter for the first time in his last eight starts. Brad Lidge gave up a run in the seventh inning before Juan Perez, David Herndon and Ryan Madson combined to log two scoreless frames. Antonio Bastardo pitched the 10th to get the win.
Deadline deals: Ryan Ludwick to the Pirates, Mike Adams to the Rangers, Erik Bedard to the Red Sox, Brad Ziegler to the D-Backs, Michael Bourn to the Braves, Ubaldo Jimenez to the Indians, among other deals that took place this weekend. Nothing new to report for the Phils.
Next up: The Phillies open a three-game set in Colorado on Monday night. Cole Hamels (12-6, 2.61) faces Jhoulys Chacin (8-8, 3.50) in the series opener.
